Serves 2
Prep time 20 minutes

You will need a lovely collection of vegetables including;
1 courgette
1 large carrot
1/2 red pepper, finely sliced
4 spring onions, finely sliced in to rings
50g beansprouts
50g spring pointed cabbage, finely sliced
handful coriander, roughly chopped
1 red chilli, finely sliced
50g natural peanuts
4 tbsp crunchy peanut butter
juice of a lime
2 tbsp soy sauce
100ml water

Spiralizers can be bought online for less than £5; you dont need an electric one, a hand operated one will do the job just fine.

  • Spiralise the courgette and the carrot. Place in to a roomy bowl.

  • Chop the pepper into fine strips.

  • Slice the spring onion on the diagonal.

  • Shred the white cabbage finely.

  • Chop the corriander, including the stalks.

  • Whizz together the peanut butter, lime, soy and water to make a creamy asian inspired dressing.

  • Add in the pepper, spring onions, beansprouts, cabbage, coriander, chilli and nuts all to a big bowl. Toss everything together with the dressing.

  • Pour over the vegetables then toss to coat everything evenly.
  • Serve sprinkled with a few extra nuts and coriander.
